After more than 25 years as a freight factoring leader, Apex Capital continues to revolutionize the industry. As the trucking industry continues to leverage technology to accelerate change, freight factors are being challenged to do the same. Apex, at the forefront of innovation, already created its own proprietary digital payment system with blynk™. Now comes 24/7 Factoring, which allows Apex clients to factor freight invoices after hours – nights, weekends, and bank holidays. Hauling loads for a living isn’t a 9-5 job, so factoring shouldn’t be.
Truckers need to get paid fast after hauling loads. Steady cash flow is crucial to keep a small to medium-sized trucking company in business. The steadier the cash flow, the better the chances for success. Yet most carriers are lucky if they get paid in 30 days for hauling a load. That’s just the nature of the trucking industry. Luckily, today truckers do have a choice. The new blynk™ digital payment system for Apex Capital factoring clients gets trucking companies paid quicker than quick after their freight invoices are purchased. No other factoring company offers this type of payment, so no one pays you FASTER – guaranteed!
Truckers need to get paid faster, especially during these trying times. That means electronic payments, because paper checks are rapidly becoming a relic in today’s world of instant gratification and fast-moving money. The new blynk™ digital payment system from Apex Capital Corp allows Apex factoring clients to get paid in minutes with speed, ease, and security after their freight invoices are processed. This makes Apex Capital the first factoring company to offer this type of proprietary payment service to clients.
We want fast. Sometimes fast isn’t fast enough, so we choose faster. That’s today’s society, gratification is expected at the speed of a click. In trucking, where most carriers are lucky if they get paid in 30 days for hauling a load, having that money super-fast is a necessity instead of a luxury. Because steady cash flow keeps a small to medium-sized trucking company in business, not to mention helps it grow. Today, truckers do have a choice. They can choose to get paid fast with a quick pay or the new blynk™ digital payment system for Apex Capital factoring clients. Confused about quick pay and blynk™? Let’s look at both and clear the air.
